Baby Blankets for Bronze Award

In Alton, IL, KSDK TV 5 reports that members of a local Girl Scout troop made a special delivery to St. Mary's Health Center on Thursday morning. Troop 71 donated 26 handmade blankets and more than 100 onesies to the hospital-wide baby shower. The baby shower project was started by a volunteer who recognized the need for more donations during these financially difficult times. The scouts designed their blankets with both style and safety in mind.

The girl scouts were inspired by the birth of a 13 ounce baby at SSM Cardinal Glennon Children's Medical Center. They earned their Girl Scout Bronze Award by completing their project. Do you have any Girl Scout Bronze Award stories to share?
